Re: Chase young discussion

I gotta say, I feel the pressure of having the #2 pick here. Because as dominant as Chase Young is, as legit of a player as he looks, in the 2-5% chance he's not and we whiff on this pick it will be embarrassing.

Yeah but I think itís one of those things where everybody else in the NFL would be shocked if he busted. There wouldnít be so much embarrassment as there would be sympathy. Itíd be like man that sucks guys, we would have done the same thing.

But I feel you - if you have the 2nd pick it needs to be an impact player or youíre set back. Nobody knows that better than the 2012 Redskins.

I would add that it's more critical because we traded our 2nd for a highly rated defensive player last year. I know we should and hopefully will take Chase Young, but at that point our front 7 will include 4 first round "can't miss" players. And our strongest lineman right now is a 5th round guy in Ionnaidis.

That's a LOT of draft capital in one part of the team. Meanwhile our TE and Oline spots are if not in shambles, shaky at best, our WRs hopefully ok but if so we got lucky, and our corners are also questionable.

This is my thought exactly....... if we assume Ionnadis and Payne are our best DTs and we are going to pick Chase Young, then is it crazy to believe that it would be best to flip one of the other three for picks? Kerrigan is older but has been a warrior for he team and will provide limited return, Sweat would make a good bookend for Young and is on cheap rookie contract, Johnathan Allen is a leader so difficult to imagine him being traded....... having the best defence is not going to generate points, though of course it will limit the number of points we have to score...... I am firmly on the fence with this which is why I will trust RR and co to make the right decision for the team

Youíre right they are issues. Luckily thereís 60M in cap space to help with those issues. This is a year when we should expect the team to be aggressive in plugging holes.

San Fran is the model. They spent a lot of 1st rounders along the line. They capped it off with Bosa at #2 overall. Meanwhile Lynch got aggressive in free agency and kept drafting well.

Bad, bad, boom 13-3.

Drafting Young at number two would not be embarrassing if he is a bust. It would suck, but nobody would ever second guess the decision.

We won't know how it turns out until 3-5 years down the road, and I am positive anybody else who had the #2 pick would take Chase Young too, but this is a real make-or-break deal for the Redskins. If you have the #2 pick, you have to get an elite, game-breaking playmaker at that spot. There is no excuse to mess it up, because you can pick anyone not named Joe Burrow. The teams that mess up opportunities to pick a game-changer are usually the ones that repeat the opportunity to pick up game-changers in the draft.

Pretty much this. Itís like when Jamf drafted Saquon at no 1 in fantasy football this year...you canít argue it.

The one guarantee in the draft is there are no guarantees

NFL's fault for pushing the draft so far back
